Gum disease is a very common problem. If left untreated, the disease can cause noticeable damage to the gum tissue and bone. Many people are often unaware they have gum disease it, as they may have few, if any, symptoms.
Symptoms of Gum Disease
Gum disease is caused by the plaque that builds up daily on your teeth. If this sticky substance is not removed, it can turn into hard tartar and start to irritate the gums, leading to redness and soreness. As a reaction to this irritation, the body can start to attack any build-up around the teeth. In some people, their immune system can overreact and start to break down the gum tissue and even the bone that supports the tooth.
